Imponderable #134: Faster, Squirrel! Kill! Kill!

This is the first of two editions of the Imponderable that The Editors and Staff call Wild Kingdom Animal Antics. (It gives us an excuse to come up with a new logo.) We’ve featured some bizarre animal stories in the past, but these are in a class by themselves. 

The source for this story is not a site I am familiar with but if this is true then we have a brand new super-villain on our hands. The odds of it being true are about nil to one, but hey, that’s what makes a good story.

In a nutshell, so to speak, a guy’s animal trainer ex-gf trained a pack of squirrels to attack him. And like you’d expect, the squirrels went for his nuts. But as I said above, we have the makings of a super-villain here. “She was partially hidden behind some bushes, but I could clearly see her and hear her. She was yelling orders at the squirrels and telling them to attack me.” 

This guy was just proof of concept. Having established that squirrels can be trained to attack, I’m sure the next step for her is to train them to rob banks. How long will it be until she has them hacking the U.S. Presidential election?

I admit up front (OK, at the end) that I don’t believe this for a single second. But who cares? 

Is this story more or less real than anything you see on CNN?
The question is Imponderable.

 

And thank you Jimbo for bringing this to my attention!

“That’s not an ad, that’s a secret origin!”

The name’s Casino. Jamie Casino. I’m a lawyer.”

This may be the best lawyer ad ever. Period.

Move over Avengers, you’ve got competition. Marvel comics needs to be kicking themselves for not creating a character like this. Sure, Daredevil is really a lawyer named Matt Murdoch, but he’s a wuss compared to Jamie Casino. If Marvel’s Ghost Rider movie was half as good as this ad, Nic Cage would have had a hit on his hands instead of, well, another Nic Cage movie.

 

BTW, who am I quoting in the title? Me, of course.
